Home Depot doesn’t usually discount more than 75%. After that they are marked at a penny and thrown out. So probably no further discounts on the lights. The fertilizer was marked down past 75% probably because, for environmental reasons, it can’t just be thrown in the dumpster.
I others words instead of throwing it away out the back door, “throw it away” out the front door.

i went by HD today and they had cleared the shelf of the projection lights—they were piled up in a cart with other xmas stuff. i was hoping this might be the penny cart and took one to get a price check, but they were still $4.98

My local Home Depot just moved their remaining Christmas stock out to the Garden area.
Stuff is still 75% off. So it could be they are just moving yours too. There is still hope.

I am watching the 12 packs of “Precept” golf balls They were $19.98 and have been $4.98.
I have already made up my mind that if I could get them at $2.50 per dozen I would buy them all. At that price the cost per ball approaches the price per ball when I go to the driving range and rent a bucket.

My HD has pulled the projection lights from the shelves—looks like it’s over.

But Lowes dropped their price to 85% off, and they were flying out the door. One other redneck decided he was gonna buy them all to re-sell, so i hurried to get an assortment to play with for $3 each before he cleaned them out.

They had Disney branded lights also, with a bigger globe and better mounting bracket, those were $3.75 each—i got the generic swirling colors instead of mickey and elves, etc.

i feel your pain.

Anymore if i find something that i really want to take apart, and it is marked at the 50 or 75% off, then i just go ahead and get one—because the odds of catching additional markoffs or the 1¢ price are really low, and the items may be pulled and gone.

On to the next deal pursuit…

If anyone is looking for the nite-ize LED/reflector/tail switch upgrade for the old incandescent AA mini maglite, they are currently $4.98 at Home Depot.

Does the $4.98 price mean they are going to start a downward price trend? They had about 10 of them on display.

3 days later I have an answer for you! When they first were put on the floor they were $19.88 $9.99. At $4.98 they were already discounted 75% 50%

I walked into Home Depot this morning and right inside the door was the “Deal of the Day”

There was an employee standing next to the cart “pitching” them to people as they walked in. I asked what the price was an he told me they were $2 a box. A customer was looking at them and I asked him how many he was buying, he told me at 50 cents a sleeve of 3 it was a heck of a deal. I said yeah it is, but how many are YOU buying? He said none, and walked away.
Then I turned to employee and told him I would buy them all, and as they were already in a cart I would wheel them out as is.
As we were right inside the entrance, next to returns, he walked over to the register and rung me out. So I paid and went back out the entrance door with them with a big smile on my face.
$2 a dozen is cheaper per ball than driving ranges charge to hit their balls.

Here is the UPC code for the dozen pack of golf balls in case anybody wants to print it out to check the price at their HD

Here are some other deals I came across.
This, a 12,000 mAh power bank.

The biggest markdown I have EVER seen. Big Smile

AND this:

Not all items that penny out go in the dumpster. These next photos come from a RESTORE store nearby. These light fixtures have been there for months. They are not selling even at this low price.

These 4 light chandeliers were originally $68 at Home Depot LOWES, then reduced to $34. This time when they didn’t sell they probably went back to the vendor, then donated to The RESTORE.
They can’t even sell them at $5 each
The reason? They only take proprietary CFL’s. Practically useless! Over the years I have seen countless examples of light fixtures, lamps etc dumped at ‘Odd Lot” type stores for that very reason. THEY DO NOT SELL.

Ooops, after I typed this post up I realized the clearance sticker is a LOWES sticker, not a Home Depot sticker Blushing

I hope that Green Air Hose isn’t like this Orange Husky Hose I bought from HD around 10yrs ago—very hard to roll up and stiff—almost like having polybutylene tubing hooked to your tool—- Good for long runs to another hose

I think they meant 14.88 as the original price.

I know that orange hose you are talking about. Yes it is stiff.
Somewhere in this thread I found a 3 pack for $5

found it.

Yes indeed, I DO have a lot of balls. I even have more balls than I did yesterday.
Another Home Depot had them for 98 cents per dozen!
Here are the before and after pics.

AND…………………………………………….
Because I have a lot of balls, I went to the service desk and asked them to refund the difference on the balls I bought yesterday!
98 dozen golf balls.

Receipt on left is refunding my card the purchase of 36 dozen balls at 1.99 each. The receipt on the right is buying them back at 98 cents.

There is a very good chance this is happening at all HD’s right now. If you are lucky, and someone like me hasn’t cleaned the store out, you can score this deal.
Another store I went too also had these at 98 cents.

There is nothing for me to think about on this deal, each year I spend more than this at the driving range. I could just hit these away and actually save a lot of money.

Next year, EVERYONE in my family is getting golf balls for Christmas. Even if they don’t play golf. Heck even my 95 year old Mother-in Law is getting them Big Smile

I was wrong though about the original price at Home Depot. They were only $9.99 per dozen. That is a great price as is. They do sell for $20 a dozen normally.

Couple weeks ago the air hose was on the website for $7.99. I looked at other hoses, basically the same in Home depot for $35.Figured the marked down hose was the black friday clearence. Went in to buy it. The display was $14.99. The manager honored the website price, took my phone and compared prices. He said the web was a mistake. Few hours later the web price was back up.

After a hard day shoveling snow I finished the day moving today’s haul of golf balls. 8 trips of 24 dozen each really tired me out.
In the house and up a flight of stairs. Believe me, 24 dozen golf balls are a bit heavy.

A friend asked me to pick up one of those 12,000 mAh power banks which I did. While I was at it, I poked around a bit and found a penny deal. It’s in the above picture, but here is a close up.

I foresee an increase of broken windows and dented car panels in certain neighborhoods shortly after the next Christmas season. Big Smile

Found a couple deals at my Home Depot:

I bought two of the boot scrubbers. Did not buy the socket set. I did buy one of the $3.83 CenTech bluetooth speakers shown in DCH’s post above though. I also picked up an MR16 12v LED “50 watt equiv” Philips bulb for $2.32. Oh, and those GE “Reveal” bulbs are on pallets by the front entrance for I think $2.02 and $2.32 a pack – I bought none.

How’s the Speaker? I got one too but haven’t tried it out yet. Seems heavy for its size. That could be a good sign.
All the Aqua Craft roofing tools are 75% off. I got pump jacks etc. all set for spring repairs.

It’s ok for what it is. Took quite a long time to charge it’s little 300mAh li-ion battery! Very little bass.

I had some free time today and needed an easy day, so I visited a couple of HD’s, Lowes etc.
First up was this deal on Polk in ceiling speakers. BUT I was too late, all gone Sad

Sitting next to them were some in wall speakers, but they were $69.00. (more on that later)

Elsewhere in the store I came across these, 56V, 2.5Ah leaf blowers. There were originally $129 and were reduced to an even $95.00
No that they are at the “6” price, it means that they are on their final clearance markdowns. Next stop the “3” price of around $35.00!

I also came across and picked up a couple of these. A small, in your palm high pressure manual pump.

Then on to another store.
I made a bee line for the electrical section to look for speakers. Yep, ceiling speakers gone, BUT so are the in wall speakers.
AND they were reduced to $13.73!

Soooooooooooo, I went back to the first store and took one of the in wall speakers up to the SCO and scanned it.
$13.73. I should have guessed that earlier, the marked price of $69.00 ended with “00”, the very first markdown price.
There were 3, and they were dirty!

I have no need for in wall speakers, but at that price I think I shall use these for parts. I would like to make a portable Bluetooth, mp3 player that runs on drill pack batteries. As far as I know, nobody, Ridgid or Ryobi or Makita or Milwaukee etc, make both a Bluetooth AND mp3 player for the tool packs
6 1/2” woofer and tweeter and a shot of the crossover. Definitely worth the price!

I saw this and stopped by my local HD, they had none in stock, none available online and if they were they were available it was still $59.99. You got lucky.
